Oswaldo Arcia Out
I'm sure this has been reported several places, but those of us who are interested in watching Oswaldo Arcia this spring are going to have to wait a bit. He's out "indefinitely" with a pulled intercostal muscle in his left side.
Count Gardenhire as one of the disappointed:
"I did want to take some looks at him, and I want to use everybody and give 'em all a chance," Gardenhire said. "That's kind of disappointing because I wanted to see him swing, but those things happen. We just have to get him well now."

Normally shortly after the minor leaguers report, which is in about a week, many of the players just added to the 40 man roster this past offseason will be sent to minor league camp. That was the case with Arcia a year ago. However, with the WBC and now this injury, I fully expect that he'll be in camp a couple of weeks longer. This certainly hurts as it is never good for a player to miss time, but the Twins know what they have in Arcia.
